BAPES is a not for profit organisation established to support paediatric minimally surgery in children.


Our Mission

Established in 1999, BAPES seeks to improve standards in paediatric minimally invasive surgery by promoting research and learning opportunities. Our organisation has instituted a number of fellowships and awards to encourage study in paediatric minimally invasive surgery.

We support our members in their professional development by organising advanced training and scholarship courses designed to improve outcomes for infants and children undergoing minimally invasive surgery.
